Chalupines on sale in San Miguel

Chalupines on sale in San Miguel

Chalupines is what the Mexicans call these tasty little creatures. They are in season now and here a couple of guys from the campesino have brought a bunch in to sell in our street. They’re crunchy with a toasty, yeasty flavor almost like potato chips. These little guys are seasoned with chile and lime after a quick deep-fry, or so I am told. I am looking forward to trying some, but would like an expert in attendance to show me the finer points of this particular kind of bug ingestion.
